North Ward School
1916. Northeast corner of 6th St. and 13th Ave.

This beige brick school has twin villa towers flanking the west entrance, a curvilinear parapet on the south, and Craftsman-style brackets under broad eaves with exposed rafter ends. The building was expanded with a sizable 1933 addition and is now a Head Start Center. A design twin, somewhat larger, is the East Ward Elementary School, now the Sunrise Community Health Center (1916), 1028 5th Avenue (northeast corner of 11th Street) (NR).
